Stewart developed an interest in design early in life and remembers being especially obsessed with the typography and layouts of his father's folk music albums.
After a few years working in Glasgow, he moved to Amsterdam, Netherlands armed with nothing more than a suitcase and a burning desire to be immersed in a multi-cultural creative environment. That wish came true when he was hired by Nike to work in their global soccer unit. He spent the next 7 years designing on-field uniforms for the best teams and athletes in the sport. His Nike career peaked with the design of all 9 Nike teams represented at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. These were some of the most successful products in the brand's history.
In Holland he also met the love of his life and had a daughter. In 2009 he moved back to the UK to kick-start the graphic design department at Umbro, a Nike affiliate company. In 2 years the team grew from 1 to 4 designers and as well as apparel graphic design, was involved in footwear, equipment, branding, print and exhibition design.
In 2011 he left the UK for Atlanta and the opportunity to be closer to family and is currently an art director at CNN.com / Chek out his work: http://www.onlymoreneverless.com
